Why Choose this Training Course?

This Electrical Equipment and Control Systems training course will emphasis that all electrical equipment and devices are vital in all electrical installation to ensure continuity and efficient operations. Equipment like transformers, motors, variable frequency drives, uninterruptible power supplies and batteries are today’s common components in most electrical installations. Safe operations are essential as they are protected by modern and sophisticated relays and protection devices.

Protection systems are installed to prevent faults from damaging electrical plant and to initiate isolation of faulted sections to maintain continuity of supply elsewhere on the system. Recent changes in technology, together with changes in the manner in which Utilities and Industrial organisations operate, has greatly emphasized the development of integrated protection and control.

This Electrical Equipment & Control Systems training course will highlight:

  • The construction and operations of transformers and motors
  • The characteristics of variable speed drives
  • The importance and role of UPS and batteries
  • The types of maintenance
  • The functionalities of protection relays
